Britain's first festival dedicated to the Eurasian Curlew, which has declined disastrously in recent years, will take place at Bolton Castle on the 2nd and 4th of June 2017.
It will be a fun packed long weekend with a serious intent, and that is to highlight the problems that Curlews are facing across the UK and in Ireland.
Wader Quest will of course be there for the whole event with a stand in the Great Chamber and we will be giving a short overview of Conservation of the world's waders at 15:45 at the castle.
Remember a lot of the events you may need to book, so get in early although there will be things to see and do for those who just want to drop in. Come to the Wader Quest stand and say hello or get your collection of Wader Quest pin badges started!.
We'd be delighted to see any Friends or Sponsors of Wader Quest there if you are in the region or fancy a great day out in the glorious North Yorkshire Dales.
Other charities including the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, British Trust for Ornithology will also be there.
